Special Needs – Classroom Friends
In partnership with the South San Independent School District’s special education department and Brighton Center’s Early Childhood intervention program we offer the Childhood Friends program for children with special needs. Our program ensures that children with special needs are given a positive early developmental/educational experience.
We believe in inclusive early education and a positive introduction to childcare for children with special needs. Parents are offered the opportunity to try out our services and bring their children two times per week to have their children participate in activities in our inclusive classrooms. Several parents have decided to enroll their child in our program after a positive beginning experience for their child.
For children identified by teachers as exhibiting significant behavioral concerns (based on standard assessments and teacher observation) we offer counseling and/or parent-child interaction therapy.
The goal of the program is to help decrease challenging behaviors, build family resiliency, increase children’s social skills, teach anger management and conflict resolution skills and train teachers and parents to work with their children.
By focusing on mental and emotional health for our children we are getting them ready for a bright future.
